Hate it or love it, Drake is doing pretty well with his new album, Views. And for what it’s worth, he seems to be enjoying the moment with this current album run. From “rare” interviews with Zane Lowe and Nardwuar to playing Faceketball with Jimmy Fallon, it doesn’t look like Drake is straying away from the spotlight any time soon. But, really, after selling 800,000+ units with Views in its first week, why would he? Also, while it feels as if no one wants Drake to win much longer, it’s hard to deny that the guy is a star. And for his latest stop, he appeared on Saturday Night Live for the third time — as both host and musical guest.
Now, while the skits were light at times, Drake shines throughout. Tackling his opening monologue of being “more than a meme” and attacking the SNL cast with “Back to Back” disses, Drake is pretty funny in a comedic setting. Aside from displaying his acting skills, he also hit the stage for performances of “One Dance” and “Hype.” Overall, Drake had a solid night and proved once again that his brand is much more than just rap.
